A piece of West of Ireland history converted into a charming home.
This building was opened as a national school 65 years ago and when it closed it was converted into the current residential home. Most of the original features have been preserved while incorporating all the facilities of modern life.
Occupying a hill-top site of almost one acre, the property is surrounded by lawns and off-road parking. The original playground buildings are still intact and could be converted to workshops or storage.
Two bedrooms, bathroom, study, kitchen and dining room.
This is a very quiet, private property with excellent views of the surrounding lands.

The property is located at the top of a hill about three miles from Belmullet on a mostly undeveloped landscape. It is an ideal place for peace and quiet. A drive leads up the house and the site is mostly lawned. To the rear is a concrete block from the original school that has some potential for conversion to workshops.
